5 months

So here's to what I can remember from Harper's 5th month...

Loves looking in the mirror after bathtime

still has the smallest feet 

they are the same size as baby Jackson's who is 4 weeks old

I just love those crooked toes

beautiful eyes

First taste of cereal....didn't quite know what to do with it

Auburn Georgia game

slept the first 3 quarters

the last quarter was a little too exciting for the person holding her

thank goodness for ear plugs

she was very proud of her rolling over ability

so much that she constantly rolled over anytime you put her on her back

then of course she cried when she found herself on her tummy  

which made us do the flip flop thing over and over at bedtime

finally realized, duh, just roll up a blacket so she can't roll 

boy I wish we'd figured that out earlier

really started grabbing at toys and actually playing with them

 Random laundry counting: 

23 burp clothes and 21 bibs used in 1 week...

they say 4 months is the "peak" of reflux...

 laying on Ryan's chest seems to be the best way to get her to stop crying

of course he must be standing up while holding her

started this straightening of the left leg thing... 

when she is laying on the changing table or swing she loves to straighten her leg right up in the air

yes, she usually points her toes

tried the exersaucer for the first time

very good and pinching and pulling hair

prefers a paci but loves her left thumb

getting pretty good at pitching a fit

but we still thinks she's cute

Christmas 2010

We had a wonderful Christmas with friends and family.  Of course Harper didn't really know what to do, but she has enjoyed playing with all her new toys and reading all her new books.  

Maggie helped open all her presents.  

We were surprised to wake up to a White Christmas.  This is the first one for us and Harper.  

Harper and Nonnie

Harper and Nanny 

Christmas Day we braved the roads and headed up to Hartselle for Christmas with grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins.  Now they had a real White Christmas with a few inches of snow on the ground. 

 Harper and Cara

 Harper and Jonathan

 All the great grandchildren

 Nanny & Pawpaw Bill

 The next day we woke up to even more snow on the ground.  Thank goodness it started melting and we could travel down to see these cute faces...


 Hoke and Will were so cute opening all their presents.



 Harper has enjoyed sitting in her new high chair.  

Merry Christmas!!!!!

Yep, she's a reader...

Harper loves to read books before bed.  Who needs that infomercial My Baby Can Read stuff when you have Eric Carle books...

Gobble, Gobble

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving with Ryan's parents, Ginny & Robby, & the Kennedy's.

Loved getting to spend some time with Will & Hoke. They are at such a fun age.
Ryan and Robby fried a turkey. It was so good!!! I sure am glad we did not have to call the fire department. I forgot to get a picture of the fire hose that they had to use. I don't really know exactly what happened; all I know is that it smelled like McDonald's when I walked outside.
The boys and their granddads.
This has become Harper's favorite spot when she gets fussy. She will just lay her head on his chest for the longest time, sometimes she falls asleep, sometimes she just lays her head down.

We tried to get a picture of them, but of course it was hard to get them all smiling.

Harper decided to play with Will's clothes, and well he didn't really like that.
Hoke is always very sweet and gentle with Harper. These two are actually a lot alike.
Happy Thanksgiving!!
